teachings of a modern spiritual adept

Bite size teachings across 30 years.

For 30 years t.k. has offered radical spiritual teachings on the divine nature of non-dual contemplation and realization. Enlightened mind here and now, born from this culture, addressing the issues of this time and place t.k. offers transmission through countless forms - words being one of them. Here are some short pieces from his teachings over the last 30 years.

Human Beings are the Stems Cells of Nature

We, as embodied beings, have a purpose within the meta-ecology of existence. We are transformers of energy taking denser energies and transforming into finer energies through spiritual alchemy. In this process we produce higher and lower products which feed and nourish existence. When we eat food our body extracts the nourishment and shits out the rest. The nourishment feeds our life, the shit also feeds the entirety of the soil food web of bacteria, protozoa, fungi. In the same way a human being who has grown into the fullness of what it means to be human eats impressions - emotional, mental, physical, aesthetic, spiritual. We are meant to eat denser impressions such as anger and transform it into finer substance such as effective action to alleviate suffering.

When we do this we fulfill the being obligation debt of our existence and there arises an inner and outer harmony with the world inside and around us.

Human beings are the stem cells of life’s body. It is our place in nature, when that place is not corrupted by confusions, to move through the body of life becoming whatever is needed, restoring, healing. Understanding the rhythms of outer/inner, above/below, delving into the subtleties of mineral, water, fire, air we discover the functioning of mysteries.

Just as children grow into adults it is also possible for adults to grow into beings of profound wisdom, compassion and bliss. It is possible to even outgrow the limitations of birth and death and grow into the profound spiritual domain of Buddha Nature. - tk., teachings
